DeFalco Celebration of Life Fund

Ryan DeFalco’s wife, Kristine passed away earlier last week from a long illness.  She was an amazing wife and mother of 2 beautiful children, Anthony (5) and Gabby (7).  Ryan works as a Retail Sales Consultant at the West Caldwell branch in New Jersey.  

During this difficult time, we are raising money to send the DeFalco family to Disney to celebrate Kristine's life during the holiday season.  Please keep this page private.  We will present this to Ryan and his family when the goal is reached. 

Please see the below note Ryan has written about Kristine. 

“Today is a beautiful day. This morning I had the honor of holding my wife and watching her become an angel.  She got her wings, along with her smile back and everything else.  This is my love, my wife. This is her smile.  We're all so lucky to have her in our lives.  Whether you met her once or spent every day with her she made you feel the same way. She's been my drug since 2002.  For her it's a blink till she sees us again.  For us it will surely feel longer and that's OK.  It gives us more time to honor her, tell more stories, smile and laugh.  Smile today because heaven has no idea what it's in for.”

All of our thoughts and prayers go out to Ryan and his family.
